This blog is supposed to be about gaming stuff, but every now and again I'll expand on other things that I'm really excited about. In this particular case, it's a new web-based spin-off from Veronica Mars called Play it Again, Dick! The show is "a digital series that follows Ryan Hansen as he tries to get a Dick Casablancas show off the ground," according to an announcement to Kickstarter backers of the Veronica Mars movie.
I was a huge fan of Veronica Mars and supported the Kickstarter. I felt like the movie was a great capstone to the series. It looks like this show is more meta. Rob Thomas is actually pretty good at meta and skewering Hollywood. His Party Down series is a hidden gem. I actually resented Parks & Recreation for stealing Adam Scott and Megan Mullally and essentially tanking the show (even if Parks & Rec was also awesome!) I'm cautiously optimistic about this one. We will see how it turns out...
The series will debut on Tuesday, September 16, on the CW Seed:
A new episode will air each week after that – for a total of eight episodes, each about 7-10 minutes long.
Buzzfeed has the inside scoop and CW Seed has a teaser trailer.
